Therapy Approach

As a therapist, I’m committed to creating an environment where my clients feel safe, supported, and understood. I believe this is the most important job as a therapist so that clients can increase their awareness of themselves and their surroundings to promote meaningful change in their lives. I take an integrative approach to provide a tailored treatment to meet the needs of the individual client. Specific techniques and approaches that I utilize include:

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
  • Mindfulness-based Interventions: Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy, Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction, Compassion-Focused Therapy
  • Trauma-focused therapies: Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Cognitive Processing Therapy, Prolonged Exposure, and trauma-informed mindfulness
  • Client-Centered Therapy




  • Adjustment Stress
  • Anxiety / Panic Attacks
  • Bipolar Disorders
  • Borderline Personality Disorder
  • Depression
  • Eating Disorders
  • Grief
  • OCD
  • Self Esteem
  • Social Skills & Peer Relationships
  • Suicidality
  • Trauma / PTSD


  • Pyeongtaek
  • Online

Fun Facts

Music is my other passion. I love singing and playing the piano. I am a big fan of the works of Schumann, Beethoven, and Chopin. Recently, I’ve been taking voice lessons. I can’t say though that I am a great singer!
